Cilantro Lime Jicama Salad

Jicama is a fresh, crunchy vegetable. It's very light and great for summer. You can add it to green salads to add an apple-like crunch, cut into matchsticks for a veggie tray, or eat it as a side dish in itself, like in the recipe below!
This is an easy, basic salad and easy to embellish. I've made it with tahini for a creamier dressing - or try it with hummus for a milder taste (tahini has somewhat bitter flavor).

1 jicama
Approx. 2 Tbsp. lime juice, or to taste
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
sea salt to taste

Cut jicama into cubes or julienne. Toss with the lime juice and add the cilantro and salt. Mix together.
Variation: Add about 1 cup of cooked black beans for another option!
